Anyone who has ever rented, particularly in a college town or big city, knows the joyous experience that is moving day. Moving everything you own from one tiny, dirty place to another tiny, dirty place on what is usually a very-hot-and-sometimes-also-raining day. Not so for us this time around, folks! We had the luxury of taking as long as we wanted to move all of our stuff in the middle of the winter. And not to brag, but we also have a driveway AND garage in the alley. So we got to park our cars and van right where we wanted to instead of doing the whole “circle the block three times hoping a spot somewhere near your door opens up, then when it doesn’t, park in front of the laundromat with your 4-ways on until a police officer on a bicycle shows up and threatens to ruin your day” thing. We also now live in a house instead of on the top of a 3-floor flat with a treacherous winding staircase. Thus, it is pretty obvious that although my legs are still covered in bruises, our most recent move was the best one yet.
I took one carload of stuff to the house each day and one trip with mom and her awesome minivan. Things were done at a reasonable pace and boxes were unpacked before the next load was brought over. Everything was peachy. And as promised, here are some pics of the new place:
Dan installing new locks on the front door. What a handyman.
Today/last night we had a nice snowfall and I got to shovel out the house. Here is our winter wonderland and my handiwork.
Finally, as of right now, the place is without internet and will be for the next week-ish, so updates might be a bit slow, but rest assured that they will happen!
